Sandra Wilson - From ceramics, decorative painting to gourds followed by oils on canvas. Moving to Pollock Pines introduced me to the Foothill Gourders and gourds have kept me fascinated. All of the skills I have acquired can be done on gourds. Because of them I have also learned pyrography and improved my skills in carving which I learned when doing ceramics. Best of all though is the fact that they have made me more creative and continuously striving to improve or try something new. To think that gourds have come down thru early history and still warrant our attention and creativity is amazing to me.
